Operating difficulties

Merseyrail’s engineering works page says there is a bus replacement service between Hunts Cross and Liverpool today. National Rail website concurs. Merseytravel’s Travel alert page says the same, as does BBC Travel News.

I was aware of this in advance and was ready to leave a bit of extra time to catch the bus. Then, as I was in the bathroom getting ready, I heard, through the open window, the distinctive sound of a Merseyrail train accelerating away from the station (the line runs past the back of our house).

I went to the station and found out that trains were actually running normally.

Merseyrail’s left hand, meet Merseyrail’s right hand. Please take the time to find out what it’s doing.
